Sherlock Holmes 3 movie (2020)

Two months before the premiere of "Sherlock Holmes: Shadow Games", inspired by the success of the first part and the very high excitement among the public about the second, Warner Bros. announced plans to release the continuation of the saga of the outstanding detective Sherlock Holmes.

However, three years later, in 2014, Susan Downey complained that this project has everything - and agreements with the title actors, and the idea, but there is no script. It was possible to assemble a team of writers who were able to bring this epic work to mind only in 2016, and only after that did the publisher have a certain confidence that the deadlines were in the technical nuances.


  • Release date: December 25, 2020
  • A country: USA
  • Genre:detective action

Details of the script, even at least an approximate summarization of the raft, are so far kept in the strictest confidence. It is only known that the film is destined to become a logical sequel to the previous story, developing the life story of the main characters further.

The previous part ended with ... that nothing ended! Sherlock Holmes, who fell with Moriarty into Reichenbach Falls, puts a significant question mark after the last word of either a book or an obituary from a friend, typed by Watson on a typewriter - “The End?”. And the viewer breathes a sigh of relief, because the brilliant detective is alive, and, therefore, the criminals of the whole world will obviously not be too good in the very near future!

Recall that the deceased (and deceased?) Professor Moriarty, a mathematical genius, the gray cardinal of the criminal world, initiates a series of high-profile terrorist attacks and crimes, to maximize the relations between Germany and France, and ultimately provoke a world war, which will increase the demand for products of his business. Through sophisticated intrigues, many car chases, shootouts and brilliant insights during the most high-profile investigation of his career, Holmes manages to uncover the plans of his personal enemy and prevent a catastrophe.

As a result, Moriarty loses all his assets, however, the detective does not have time to realize the sophisticated revenge on the detective. Holmes, realizing that he cannot win in the final battle due to a recent injury, grabs the villain and decides to exploit, having crossed over the balcony overhanging the waterfall.

The result of the development of love lines was the following: Watson is happily married to Mary, but Irene Adler died tragically at the hands of Moriarty, who infected her with some special form of tuberculosis through tea, which kills in a matter of seconds.

Well, given that Conan Doyle’s case at the Reichenbach Falls does not put an end to the career of the most famous detective in the world, we will have a fascinating continuation of this story. And although in the original works Holmes later dealt only with the final rout of the remains of the criminal organization of the deceased Moriarty, in numerous subsequent works “based on” from different authors the main antagonist was not allowed to die - as a result he acquires some paranormal abilities and the confrontation of the two geniuses continues until his final death. Which of the endings will the creators of the third Sherlock Holmes choose? We will wait until the end of December 2020 - and find out!

Camera crew and cast

The third part, like the previous ones, will be filmed by Guy Ritchie, known for his bestsellers “Agents A.N.K.L.”, “Cards, money, two trunks”, “Big jackpot”, “Revolver”, “Rock-n- rolester, "The Sword of King Arthur" and many others. And in the producer pool, in addition to the famous wife of Robert Downey Jr., Joel Silver and Lionel Wigram. According to the latest data, the script should be prepared by Kieran Fitzgerald, Geneva Dvoret-Robertson, Justin Malen, Nicole Perlman and Gary Witt.

I would like to hope that the genius Hans Zimmer will write the music for the picture, as well as the predecessors - yes, the very person who presented us with outstanding themes from Pearl Harbor, The Lion King, Pirates of the Caribbean and Gladiator’s. " The camera pool will be headed by the same Philippe Rousselo, five times nominated for an Oscar, and once - the winner, for "Where the river flows."

Undoubtedly, the casting of all parts is simply magnificent. Although some admit that after reading the works of Conan Doyle, Holmes did not imagine this at all. Robert Downey Jr. managed to significantly rejuvenate the character, make him much more mobile and active, endow him with vivacity and ironic sense of humor instead of total narcissism and a tendency to painfully affirm his superiority over others.

In a word, we got a sort of “Iron Man” in the scenery of the 19th - beginning of the 20th century, an ingenious, not missing opportunity to play a joke on someone, and at the same time a dedicated hero, ready for anything for the good of other people. Undoubtedly, the actor did this with ease, given that Marvel’s cinematic comics is not limited to his track record: he also has projects like “Judge”, “Soldiers of Failure” and “Zodiac”, and his “Chaplin”, for which there was no time he was nominated for an Oscar, and is generally considered the best biopic of the legendary comedian in history. And there were "Kiss right through", "Back to back", "Soloist", "Gothic" ...

His partner is the incomparable Watson! - became the Briton Jude Law. The star of "Talented Mr. Ripley" (Oscar nomination for a supporting role), "Cold Mountain", "Intimacy", "Enemy at the Gates", "All Royal Ratification", "Hacking and Penetration", as well as "Exchange Holidays" , no doubt adorned the story of Sherlock. Which was followed by a logical continuation of his career with such excellent works as the main role in the series “Young Dad”, the movie “Side Effect” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where They Live” (we did not know that Dumbledore was such a handsome man in his youth ...).

In the third part, participation was announced by Rachel McAdams (Irene Adler), so the rumors about her death in the last film can be greatly exaggerated ... Recall this actress is known for such films as "Mean Girls", "Memory Diary", "Uninvited Guests "," Good Morning "," Doctor Strange "," In the Spotlight "(Oscar nomination)," Oath "," Aloha "," The Most Dangerous Person "," Big Game "and others. Mary will play Kelly Riley (t / s "Black Box", the movie "Me and Orson Welles", "Sort", "Crew"), and if the script assumes the participation of Mycroft Holmes, then for his role, of course, again they will call Stephen Fry (The Black Viper, Jeeves and Worcester, Wilde and others). 100% will not do without the ubiquitous inspector of Lestrade (Eddie Marsan - "The Illusionist", "21 grams", "New York Gangs", "Hancock", etc.), but if, nevertheless, they "reanimate" Moriarty, then it is possible that we will see again on the screens of Jared Harris (the movie “The Edge”, “Mad Men”, the movie “Militarily Willed Millionaire”, “Happiness”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and many others).

Movie Facts

The second candidate for the role of an antagonist (if it is not Moriarty's "undying") may be Arsen Lupine (a novel by Maurice Leblanc).

In the Marvelian Avengers saga, Robert Downey Jr. you have to play with Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes from the eponymous series), Martin Freeman (Watson in some adaptations) and Ben Kingsley (another version of Watson). By the way, in “Captain Marvel” to play and Jude Law.
